I have a strong background in computer science. Since 2008, I have been researching in bioinformatics and computational biology, with a focus on analyzing next-generation sequencing (NGS) data to estimate evolutionary relationships between biological species. In particular, I have - Developed mathematical models for analyzing large-scale genomic data. - Designed scalable, exact and approximation, combinatorial algorithms. - Implemented software tools along with GUI and visualization. - Analyzed empirical data sets to test biological hypotheses. - Performed massive gene simulations to evaluate statistical and non-statistical models. - Computed computational complexity of research problems. I earned my PhD in computer science in 2013, and continued working on the same line as postdoctoral research associate for two more years. Specialty: I am passionate about probing large-scale “-omics” data sets to answer critical biological and biomedical questions. My core expertise is in combinatorial algorithms, and I take statistical approaches with ease. I have broad knowledge of biology, in particular, evolutionary biology and genetics. I implement research software in C/C++ and Java, and use Python, R, and MATLAB for different purposes in developing bioinformatics pipeline. I enjoy working in cross-disciplinary team, and have led several cross-disciplinary projects and mentored juniors.Postdoctoral Research Associate/Bioinformatics Analyst in transition @ From June 2015 to Present (5 months) Postdoctoral Research Associate @ - Developed new mathematical models, designed graph algorithms, and coded software programs using C/C++, Java. - Experimented with statistically simulated and empirical data sets, and collaborate with biologists in data analysis. - Developed experimental pipelines using Python and prepared input data using R. - Published my research in peer-reviewed conferences and journals, and attended professional meetings.
